Going to Disney World isn’t just for older kids, toddlers can have fun too! If you’re planning a trip to Disney World, these 60 things to do with toddlers at Disney will help you plan a fun and stress-free day at the parks!
When Chris and I first started taking our little boy to Disney we had a lot of people ask us why we were taking him at such a young age. Many thought that it just wasn’t worth it because there wasn’t a lot to do with them and they wouldn’t remember the trip. But Chris and I, being huge Disney nerds, didn’t want to not go just because we had a baby. So we decided to find things to do with our toddler at Disney that would be fun for all of us!
The first few trips we went with him were full of walking around and riding a handful of rides our entire trip. A lot of that had to do with the fact that we brought our own stroller and didn’t want to leave it and have it get stolen while we were on a ride (trust me, it happens more than you would think).
After that I decided that I was tired of going to Disney and not being able to do anything I took some time to rework how we did our Disney trips. As our toddler has gotten bigger our Disney trips have become easier, because even though he isn’t able to walk on his own yet, his awesome head control makes it easier to carry him in the baby carrier. And that makes going on our favorite rides easy!
